Personally I did not enjoy our visit to Trebah as much Glendurgan gardens which is nearby. The lower end of the garden is excellent with the option to go out onto the private beach. However I found other parts rather too themed and a bit overgrown and dark. The visitor facilities at the top of the garden are very good... More

This is a delightfully varied garden running downhill to a cove on the Helford River estuary. Streams and ponds accompany you, and there are plantations of bamboos alongside giant gunneras and tree ferns. A joy. Only criticism is if you take the left-hand path uphill you end up at a gate marked private with no indication as to the way... More

Great wee walk after a pub lunch. Absolutely beautiful. Kids happy too. Carp pool...bamboo ...beach...giant rhubarb and beautiful hydrangea. Well worth a visit for a few hours.

I took the passenger ferry from Helford Village to Helford Passage and then walked from the beach to the gardens. The distance is around a mile and is a fairly easy walk. That said if arriving by car there is ample free parking on site. Entrance to the gardens is £9 per adult and the ticket is valid for 7... More

This is a wonderful garden in it's own right, but the fact that there are areas of interest specially provided for children is quite impressive. The cafe is excellent. There is a lot of walking and some of the paths are steep. This is not a problem for those who are fit, but the less mobile (like me) can find... More

Arrived at lunchtime - had very enjoyable meal and drink. Gardens are just the right size for a gentle wander around with the bonus of a private beach. Have an ice cream and sit at the waters edge, its so relaxing there.

Visited as part of a Shearings coach excursion. Chose the more difficult path to see this wonderful garden which lasted one hour and fifty minutes with a very informative guide. Meant we only had ten minutes before the coach departed. Had no time to see the beach, plant sales or cafeteria, as we were only allocated a two hour time... More

Trebah Gardens were unknown to me until we were recommended to go there from a couple walking near St Anthony's Head. Boy, am I glad we followed it up. THE most enjoyable, beautiful, diverse and spiritually lifting place. AND all complete with it's own private beach with proper Cornish ice cream, for the cherry on the cake!......

I've visited several times and there's always something special to see. Go when the Handkerchief tree is out - late May if you can. It's a valley garden which leads down to a private beach where American soldiers embarked for the Normandy landings in WWII. There was special provision for borrowing electric wheelchairs - an excellent provision with excellent service... More

This is really lots of gardens within a garden - a huge one. Views and vistas from many different spots and treats around most corners. We seem to have visited at a green time though - too early for the many hydrangeas and too late for the rhododendrons and camellias. There were a lot of foxgloves! It's a very beautiful... More
